The author of this book, a veteran of the Iraq war, became an antiwar hero when he refused to return to his unit and was courtmartialed in 2004 for desertion. His firsthand account of prisoner abuse, senseless patrols that invite insurgent attacks, discord among his demoralized comrades and their careerist officers, and the constant brutalization of Iraqis by paranoid, trigger-happy GIs paints an indelible portrait of the dirty war in the Sunni triangle and Mejía's painful confrontation with and rejection of his complicity in it.
